The Cannes Lions Festival is always worth watching for those interested in creativity and technique in marketing and advertising. Some of the very best creatives and film makers link to produce wonderful short works.
There is always some controversy to keep us interested. As Creative Review’s piece on Cannes discusses, a few pieces were withdrawn even after prizes were awarded. The same report lists all the winners. Terry O’Reilly of “Under The Influence” attended Cannes and his blog has some interesting discussions.
Here are a couple of prize winners that I found particularly special. The first is a 3-minute piece from the Spanish lottery corporation that is beautifully made and has a heart-warming message.
The other has a personal meaning to me, suffering as I do from COPD. It is called the Breathless Choir:
Beautiful and creative stuff.
